In the brink of power outages and loadshedding is the sight and sound of a business opportunity in Energy.   Energy is among the world's greatest investments.  However, where is the place to invest?  For Investors who are looking to invest in Energy, Pakistan is among the World's greatest opportunities.  The term "Loadshedding" will seem like the key term "Economic Opportunity."  It also means an investment with a high probability of an investment return. 

Pakistan is among the most overlooked nations in the world.  But people forget that it is in the top ten lists of population and a high growth rate of population.  Aside from security and terrorism images Pakistan receives, that is the sign that it is scaring away the big investors from the real images of Pakistan.  An investor must carefully examine Pakistan before fully investing in to the Energy.  But the plans must be made now for policies and procedures to be implemented in the future. 

The price to build an Energy Plant is low, considering the obstacles.  Also, labor is at a lower cost than some other nations and the opportunity to get land is also much easier.  Pakistan's economy may not be great at this time but with loadshedding issues and the population growth rate, it is an investment hub.  If Pakistan has an Energy Demand on a bad economy, think of what the Energy Demand would be in a good economy.  Pakistan is part of an emerging group of developing countries that need more and more electricity and Power by the week. 

Politics is a great challenge in Pakistan, however, all the politicians want to stop the loadshedding issues.  Pakistan needs the investment in Green Energy Technology and can be used as a case of how Energy can be used to fight Terrorism.  Pakistan already has access to knowledge and experts with Energy backgrounds, thanks to it's fine institutions.  They can be hired and those with overseas experience would only make the asset of an Energy Plant more valuable. 

The Energy Plants that will be built today will be strong in the future, provided proper planing, and using careful strategy to combact the energy crisis.  In a world where investors are easily scared, we know that countries like Pakistan already have a demand, despite a bitter global economy.  Now is the time to invest in Pakistan's Energy needs and it will open the door to future opportunities in the Central Asian Markets.  Electricity is the key to the future in the Power Sector.  We need greater investment in Green Energy Plants and use this as an opportunity to set our mark in the future.
